MSA stands behind our core values of hard work, promoting fairness, member engagement, and increasing awareness through advocacy. MSA is at the State Capitol every day of session advocating to make the industry better for all subcontractors. Below is a summary of what MSA has accomplished for subcontractors in the last several years:

  • Indemnification reform     
  • Limiting retainage to 5%
  • Establishing retainage payment dates & greater transparency on public and private projects

Here are just a few of the 2023 bills that are impacting the construction industry:

  • Duty to Defend (HF865/SF754)
  • Paid Family Medical Leave (HF2/SF2)
  • Earned Sick & Safe Time (HF19/SF34)
  • Cannabis (HF100/SF73)
  • Wage Theft (HF1859)
